Ocean Waves was born out of a hip local beach, surf, and fishing town in Atlantic Beach, Florida. Ocean Waves Sunglasses was founded over 40 years ago by people who grew up here, fishing, surfing and having fun.

Yes, we are a locally owned business which got its humble beginnings from our Founder who was well known in both the optical profession as an avid fisherman. The Ocean Waves brand was founded to satisfy both the market desire to protect eyes from UVA & UVB and provide durable eye-wear with spectacular visual qualities when around water or looking down through the water.   Our passion for great vision and love for fishing resulted our creation of a broad range of optics that provided exceptional visual experiences as well as product durability for everyday offshore and inshore use.

We created an industry leading line of performance sunglasses and because we love fishing, we did a lot of testing… and by testing we mean long days backwater and ocean fishing, working with charter captains and developing lenses to their unique specifications. We are hands on, responsive to our customer’s needs for performance eye-wear; and it’s part of the long legacy we are proud of.

Our glasses are backed by our craftsmanship, technology and passion for our customers clear vision. It’s a beautiful world out there – why not see it clearly no matter what you are up to?
